10 productivity apps in M365b you didn't know you had

Microsoft 365 is home to an abundance of innovative office apps that are designed to help you achieve more on your computer. With most businesses getting it primarily for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, they are missing out on the treasure chest of possibilities waiting for them.

Remote working has recently come to fruition and is pivotal today, so finding the right apps that will suit your business is guaranteed to save time, increase productivity, and make life a whole lot easier.

And there are literally hundreds to choose from!

It would probably be helpful if there were a guide to the best hidden apps of Microsoft 365 right? Well, luckily for you, you’ve come to the right place. Here are 10 apps we think every business should pay close attention to:


A super easy and comprehensive app that helps you stay organised with your business’s daily tasks and the completion of them. Not only is it a great working space, but Planner integrates with other apps to allow direct file sharing.


Ever scheduled a meeting with your team or a client and ended up forgetting the details of when and where it’s taking place? Look no further, Bookings allows you to make appoints with anyone, send invites where the recipient can select a time and date that suits them and automatically adds it to your calendar.

Power Automate

Have you ever been in that repetitive cycle of repeating an action again and again? Power Automate creates workflows using the actions you use most often from other apps, taking that time and stress off your hands and freeing up space for you to focus your attention on other important aspects of your business.

Power Apps

Power Apps removes the manual entry of data and gives you the tools you need to create apps that improve your working life. Although like Power Automate, this app provides you with a space to create your very own app, without the expenses that comes with using a developer.
